well i woud never get a case with a psu for 50$. the psu that will prob come with it will be garbage. so ill just give u links to cses without psus.

raidmax case

codegen case, i recommend this one the most for budget

powmax case

there are alot of others. i would go with the codegen one. proof of its l33tness

anandtech gave it edotrs choice gold.

Quote:
We hand our Editor's Choice award over to Codegen's 6209 for its top performance in our thermal benchmarks, a solid construction, as well as features such as a CPU air duct, tool-less expansion slots, and a full set of auxiliary ports. With a price of $32, it is not much more expensive than the others and is well worth the money with the combination of features and performance it provides.

I wish that the industry would catch on to the Sonata's design for the Hard drive.... It makes soooo much more sense, especially when your plugging your power connectors into your video card.... Speaking of which, I wonder why Antec didn't do the same design in that case you listed above, they look a lot alike.

I should have added this in my original post but you get what you pay for. If you think your going to get a decent PSU for 10 extra bucks your wrong and when your scratching your head trying to figure out why your having random shut downs and crashes, you'll regret it. If you want a good case and a pretty good PSU go for an Antec case w/ a PSU, you'll probably end up paying around $100.
